    • Undo Sorting (revert back to previous manual sort)

      Undo a gallery sort. Say I've been manually sorting photos in a gallery, but want to try one of the predefined sorts, like sort by date taken. If I don't like that sort, I'd want to go back to my manual sort. Right now, no way to do that.

      • Restore Share email to Organize

        I am often in Organize mode and wish to send a Share email. That capability used to exist, but has been removed. I would like to see that capability reinstated. To send a Share email now I have to exit Organize mode.

        • Provide geofencing capabilities to protect privacy of some geotagged photos

          I love geotagging my photos, and letting people see where they were taken.

          I also value location privacy when it matters. For example photos taken at my home or a friend's.

          I've recently migrated away from Flickr to being a Smugmug customer, and there were some geoprivacy related features I very much appreciated and would really like to see Smugmug handle better.

          The first problem I have is that you can disable map features on Smugmug, but I've just tested downloading a photo in a gallery with map features disabled, and location data is still retained in the downloaded image.…

          • Charge ZERO commission on print sales

            My SmugMug busines account costs me £240 at current conversion rates (plus foreign currency transaction charges), and charges 15% on all sales, including digital downloads (which is just stupid, because if a client is paying £600 for a gallery, am I going to pay £90 for them to download it, or send it to them via wetransfer for free?).

            Increasingly competitors offer the features that I chose SmugMug for, but without the commission. The leader seems to be Zenfolio. Everything I want is in their Pro UK account for £192 per year, with no commission at all.

            I have never…

              • Photo frames with custom aspect ratio and repositioning

                I would like to suggest adding an option for custom aspect ratio and repotiioning of photo in frame in the single photo option.

                This would allow to use irregular aspect ratio, such as 4:1 or even 5:1, and the repositioning of the photo in frame (like in the gallery header) would be a natural complement for this feature.

                    • Allow different sized views for owners

                      As an account owner, I'd like to view all my images at full size if I desire while maintaining security and protections. In essence, if I own the image, I should be able to see any size, while visitors to my site should only see the gallery set size.

                      I believe Flickr has something similar to this implemented.

                      • Add a displayable 'folder description' to folders

                        We badly need a 'description' field in Folders to provide summary information to viewers.

                        The workaround - to customise each folder with a text content block - is simply not workable for sites with many folders as it's a lot of work, and risks breaking the uniform look and feel.

                        This is one feature which is edging me back to Zenfolio... Please please add this feature.

                        • Have "Make this Gallery Custom" be default instead of "All Galleries"

                          I have a question and a suggestion. The suggestion is to change the customization of galleries to make "Make This Gallery Custom" the default position rather that "All Galleries." I propose that most text usage will be intended for one gallery, not all, and that, as happened to me twice, I changed the lead-in text on all of my galleries accidentally when I had intended it for the new gallery I was working on. My question is related: Is there a way for me to change that default on my account even though, because I was burned twice before, I…

                          • Create a way to add private/ hidden tags to photos in public albums.

                            I work for a summer camp, and would like to be able to tag individual children across multiple public albums, without their names being displayed to the public.

                            Can you create a way for users to add private keywords to public albums for this purpose?

                              • Allow slideshow (or lightbox) arrows to be placed other than at the sides.

                                Allow back/forward arrows for slideshow (and lightbox) to fit not just at the sides of the slideshow but also right under the slideshow and not intrude on the image area. (Or maybe other locations too?)

                                And to be able to group the back/forward, thumbnails link, full screen button, and play button all neatly together under the slideshow.

                                And for these not to disappear/reappear or fade/unfade with mouse hoverings .

                                • Allow pinning individual page sidebars

                                  Currently, the sidebars on pages pin only if they are an entire site sidebar or homepage sidebar.

                                  That disallows having different pinned sidebars on different pages.

                                  Moreover, entire site sidebars display on the 'Unlock Page' page, which would not be wanted if you want all of the content of your pages (including the sidebar) to be private.

                                  It seems pretty basic to allow having different content on sidebars on different pages, and to choose to pin all of them or some of them individually, and for the sidebar not to be visible to people without a visitor password.

                                  I can't…

                                  • Allow interaction between slideshow/thumbnails so that both pages can have other content too.

                                    I would like to have pages that have on them a slideshow but also other content blocks with other text, such as a paragraph about the subject of the slideshow or navigation on a sidebar, etc.

                                    Then also a button to the thumbnails. And on the thumbnails page, also content blocks along with the thumbnails. Then to be able to click on a thumbnail to bring you back to the slideshow page at that image in the slideshow.

                                    For example, see this page by another photographer:

                                    http://www.krisannejohnson.com/Projects/Old-German-Baptist/1

                                    You see that she has her sidebar navigation on both the slideshow page…

                                    • Show new photos with a 'New Addition' icon or something similar

                                      Would be nice to show New photos with a piece of text or icon indicating it is a new image added within the last 15 days.

                                      • Let us add a border around text content blocks.

                                        Without a border, some text looks out of place. It would be great to have an option to have a border around the text content block, just makes it look a lot more appealing.

                                        The only other way we can do this is in Photoshop but it is quite time-consuming.

                                        • Simplify sharing favourites from a private gallery

                                          My clients want private galleries, but they also want to share their favourites images. Smugmug should make this extremely easy for them. Currently it's far too complicated.

                                          I offer each client a password protected gallery. I want them to be able to select their favourite images, then share only their favourites selection, without the need for a password etc.

                                          Selecting favourites needs to be simplified. Brides just want to click a heart, anything more complicated than that is too complicated. Please make this an option directly on the images in the gallery, rather than in the light box. If you…
